  1. Why do so many nurses work multiple jobs?

    I work two jobs- one in acute care adult med surge. I hate it but im learning so much and getting great experience. The other I love in subacute pediatrics. I want to be an NP eventually but need the money, experience and skills. I suffer through my ...
  2. National University FNP Program

    It’s local and my work has a discount with their masters and NP programs. Also, my dad went there many years ago
  3. National University FNP Program

    I didn’t. I do intent to apply, but I had another baby so it’s been crazy with three under three
  4. Remember back in nursing school when our pathophysiology teacher told us all: "At the end of this class, you will all have convinced yourself you have at least one of the diseases we have talked about." It felt like just yesterday that I was sitting ...
  5. Very torn over what I should do.

    Thanks for the insight. I do appreciate it. I have narrowed it down a little- at least to the point that I will not be staying at my current job. The pay cut (no differentials) is just too drastic ($9/hr) and while my boss promised me the day shift s...

  11. Help Me Decide Based On Your Experience

    I would do the tele job if your goal is to go back to school. That’s an incredible stepping stone. And one I do not see can be as easily accomplished by the other two options. I would do the pedi job if being there for every moment of your ...
  12. Was I in the Right Here?

    I wish there had been security or an available charge nurse but unfortunately neither were available-1) we do not have security 2) charge nurse was busy with other patients.
  13. Was I in the Right Here?

    After reading comments from others and being in the situation myself, I disagree. The “delay of care” was well within reason given the patient load I had and given n my safety was in jeopardy. Yes I could have taken someone, but no one was available,...
  14. Was I in the Right Here?

    Really? So my safety is of no importance?
  15. Was I in the Right Here?
